3 Prudent Reasons to Store Your Belongings While You Sell

You’ve decided to move house. But first, you need to sell the home you live in now. Instead of waiting until you do sell to move all your belongings out, you should consider storing some of them with your removalist while you put your home on the market. Here are three reasons why that might be your most prudent move:

1. Less Clutter, More Visual Space Means Higher Offers for Your Home

Ditch the clutter for more dollars: No one likes to buy a home that they’ll have to downsize their own belongings for. Yet if your home is stuffed full of your furniture, dishes, and clothes, potential buyers will think that your home lacks enough storage space. They’ll move on—and buy another home that’s clutter free. You’ll eventually have to drop your price, even though you know your home is worth more.

Engage buyers’ imaginations with more visual space: Buyers want to imagine themselves in your home. Draw their attention to your home’s more attractive features by removing the furnishings that stand in their way. Too many personal items won’t give them room to imagine their own pieces in the rooms.

2. Less to Clean Means You Can Clean More

When you’re on the hunt for a new home, it’s like having an extra part-time job. It’s hard work. You may not have enough time to clean your home, even though your agent wants to show it the next day. If you ask your home removalist to store some of the items that seem to draw dust bunnies like a magnet, you’ll save time, yet have a sparkling-clean home to show potential buyers.

3. You’ll Be Halfway Packed Before You Move

When you pack and store part of your belongings way before you have to move, you won’t have as much to pack after you find your dream home. With part of the hard work behind you, you’ll feel more relaxed and less likely to procrastinate on packing the rest.

If you’re selling your home, you owe it to yourself to find out how much time and money you can save by storing some of your belongings while you await the right buyer. It may surprise you just how inexpensive it is to store your stuff with your removalist. And—if that removalist is Zoom Removals—you can get one month’s storage for free when you prepay for six months in advance. Just think—you’ll get a head start on your own removal and make your home more attractive to buyers when you take advantage of the secure, economical storage facility at Zoom Removals.
